The Mexican Sergio Pérez (Red Bull), second in the Formula One World Championship, who was eliminated in the first qualifying round (Q1) and starts fifteenth this Sunday at the British Grand Prix, the tenth of the championship, said in the silverstone circuit He is “disappointed” with this result and that “it will be difficult to come back”, but that they will try.
“Today has been a disappointing day. The red flag (which came out in Q1, to withdraw the Haas of the Dane Kevin Magnussen from the track) lasted much longer than we initially thought, so we lost temperature in the tires, which It was difficult for us to warm up properly”explained ‘Checo’, born 33 years ago in Guadalajara (Jalisco) and who is second in the championship, 81 points out of the 229 with which his teammate leads, the Dutchman MaxVerstappen, who will start first this Sunday in England.
“The weather also caused us problems,” The Mexican, who has six wins in the premier class, two of them this year (in Saudi Arabia and Azerbaijan), pointed out in reference to the changing conditions that prevailed throughout the main timed session.
“The changing conditions made things even more complicated, so we ended up with a rather poor qualifying,” said Sergio Pérez, who, finishing third last Sunday in Austria, at the Red Bull Ring, the circuit owned by his team, added his 31st podium finish in Formula One.
“We had a good session yesterday,” said ‘Checo’ in reference to Friday, when free practice ended with the fourth half. “So, from now on, what you have to do is wait for tomorrow to arrive and try to score as many points as possible,” added the brave driver from Guadalajara, who also started fifteenth last Sunday and finished third.
“It’s going to be difficult to come back and advance through the peloton, but we are going to give everything; and we will try”said the Mexican from Red Bull.
